The Marie Selby Botanical Gardens is the only botanical garden in the world dedicated to the display and study of epiphytes, especially orchids and bromeliads, and their canopy ecosystems, with a focus on botany, horticulture and environmental education. Ongoing research and exploration for tropical plants attracts worldwide attention of international scholars and plant enthusiasts.

Attendees will spend their time enjoying a docent-led walking tour of the gardens (prior to public admission), followed by time to enjoy the gardens, a tour of the home, gift shop and rare exhibit of Andy Warhol's "Flowers." Lunch will be on your own at The Cafe Restaurant, which has soups, salads, sandwiches, desserts and beverages.
